One of mine makes a louder noise when it comes on. It would be fine if it had a longer delay and didn't shut off during movies and programs. The other one doesn't do it, so it is still on auto.

In over my head.

You have to cut the power and turn it back on in "on" mode to get the squeak. If I turn them on in "auto" mode they don't squeak. I do get little thumps though when they do the auto standby thing. Some worse than others. (I have 4)

Regards.
I have two of these subwoofers, and they're supposed to always be "on".
In other words, you leave the on/off switch in the "on" position, attach the subwoofer cable to the LFE (left) input, and it awaits a signal from your receiver/pre-amp. When it receives a signal it automatically comes to life (LED atop turns green), and when no signal is present it automatically goes to sleep after about 7 or 8 minutes (LED atop goes back to red).
Just follow the setup instructions for the sub, and for set up of your receiver's room correction software and all will be well...

I'm in a temporary living situation & haven't even connected the sub yet.

Ok Thxs for the answer but... when i listen to low vol. The ES250 doesn't receive enough power to go 'on' and a loose a little sound because of this damn auto-off function !
Could a JBL officiel maintenance shop could remove this function ?

Your volume level makes no difference as to whether or not the subwoofer is receiving a signal. It sounds like you're subwoofer is not receiving a consistent signal, which may point toward a defective LFE input jack that's not maintaining contact all the time. It could be a bad solder joint inside(?). I'd email JBL's customer service and describe the problem, and if still under warranty they may be able to recommend a local authorized repair outlet. If not, you'll need to take it in and get it diagnosed and fixed yourself. Sounds like a bad internal solder joint to me...

My dual L8400P subs have been on or standby, I don't remember, but they come on whenever they get a signal and turn off after a few minutes without. Been like that for maybe 7 years and I always enjoy hearing the "chirp" that lets me know they both activated. I remember some folks returned their L8400P because of the "chirp" thinking it was defective, lol.
I had to get a new AVR and the new one had an unfamiliar to me setup and the subs had a hard time activating until I figured out the sttings and set boost to 20dB. All is well now.
Those 2 Cherry L8400Ps were the the best deal assembling my surround rig. Well the one in the Living Room anyway. They are sandwiched between 3 Cherry L880s now.

Yes. But for the money, the L890 is a better value.

Yes, although 120 would be an inappropriate XO for the 890, or 880. Subs are not particularly good at reproducing 80+ Hz audio, especially music.

100~120 is way too high, especially if the subs are located anywhere but between the mains. Sub localization starts above 80 htz.

Let those towers do their thing.

I am finally moving out of a apartment and into a house and am considering upgrading to a pair of JBL l890's.
I don't think I will have enough room for the 2 pairs of JBL l820's I currently have. That said, if anyone is interested in a pair of L820's with speaker stands, please send me a pm.
If you are in the Virginia area, I can deliver them.

If it were me, I'd hang on to them...at sometime in the future you might be kicking yourself if you sell them.

Had a fellow forum member over tonight, who I consider a friend at this point, to listen a bit to the M2's. It was a great time and just highlights an awesome aspect of this forum. I've met many on this forum over the years and a few I consider friends after several GTG's. Brian is one of them and I really enjoy hanging with him. He also brought his new Porsche Cayman with him and he took me for a spin - NICE CAR! Fast and just totally connected to the road. I really enjoyed the ride.

I have been messing around with Dirac in my system for a little while now and have grown to appreciate it immensely. Unlike Audyssey, it has been able to correct room anomolies without stripping away what makes the M2's special. It also has done a fantastic job on the bass in my room and is just very transparent.

We listened to a lot of content today and Brian brought some real heavy bass hitting songs with him and it was just unreal on the M2's with dual JTR S2's. Just clean, clean, clean - top to bottom. Personally, I haven't heard a better system. Haha! Yes, I know I'm biased! So take it all with a grain of salt if you wish . But I just love these speakers immensely. I just find nothing to criticize and I can just listen to them endlessly.

We played them ridiculously loud, but I also showed Brian how they can play ridiculously low(I'm talking -70) and it is still possible to hear all the elements of a song. I'm not sure what it is about them that does that - the CD, the horn, ?? - but it is a remarkable attribute of the M2.

It's not often I get to critically listen to the M2's for any extended period with the kids and wife and all, so it was as much a listening session for me as it was for my guest . I really had such a good time just listening to tunes and hanging with great company.

The M2's and the JTR subs knocked it out of the park and JBL gets a huge thank-you from me for designing these M2's, they're just a remarkable speaker. And yeah, I know, I threw a lot of "remarkables" around, but I've listened to quite a few speakers and the M2's, to my ears and my tastes, are very special for sure.

Sounds like a great evening. I bet they are wonderful speakers. While they are well out of my budget, I must say Dirac did wonders to my PS system and it has never sounded better, so I'm not as jealous as I could be.

Yep, the Dirac really brings it all home. And the better the speakers, the more you notice the improvement.

The autoEQ's just can not stand up to Dirac. The HK EZset just flat compresses the sound/music, whereas Dirac does not.
Dirac gives me a flat FR down to 25 htz before it starts to roll off.
And got rid of 2, 3 peaks between 1500~2200 htz.
Dirac was the final tweek my custom mains needed.

Yeah, good times.

What is a PS system? Sorry, I should probably know that...

Aha, thank you. I only have direct experience with Audyssey and Dirac. Audyssey was generally good for movies as well since not a lot of critical listening going on there.

It would also have to do with movie soundtracks being recorded differently from music.
When I was in Japan, last spring, I setup my son's Studio L/Marantz system, my thought was that Audyssey was better than Harman's EZset EQ.
But Dirac is in a league of its own, imo.
